UrgoTouch : The first laser for scar optimization

The Urgotouch laser treatment is a dermatological and aesthetic surgery treatment that optimizes and improves healing after surgery.

This medical information sheet was written in July 2020 by Dr ABBOU and Dr PESSIS who are aesthetic surgeons in Paris. Dr. ABBOU and Dr. PESSIS practice dermatological surgery on a regular basis, both in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

What is the urgotouch laser ?

The Urgotouch laser is a laser used in the operating room at the end of the operation to improve the quality of the scars. It is a very recent technology that has benefited from several years of research and development.

What are the objectives?

Urgotouch can be used for the removal of an unsightly scar as well as for any cosmetic surgery procedure. It is therefore an integral part of the three factors on which the surgeon can act to make your scar as discreet as possible.

  • The quality of the technical gesture of the suture.
  • The absence of tension on the scar.
  • The use of the Urgotouch laser.

Integrating the Urgotouch laser into the surgical process allows to optimize the appearance of the scar

There are no contraindications related to the type of skin. All patients can therefore benefit from the Urgotouch laser to improve their scars.

Who is it for?

The Urgotouch laser is intended for all patients who wish to improve their healing and the aesthetic appearance of their scars after surgery.

What is the procedure?

Before the intervention

  • Medical consultation with your plastic surgeon who will suggest the Urgotouch laser if you have factors of poor healing.

Course of treatment

The UrgoTouch laser is used at the end of the operation after the suture and just before the dressing.

This innovation consists in stimulating the scarring process at the end of the operation, just after the suture. Its goal is to make the scar as discreet as possible. The principle of Urgotouch, like that of all lasers, is to diffuse heat in an extremely targeted manner. This diffused heat acts on the healing process in its initial phase. It reduces the inflammatory process. It also optimizes the production of collagen, the precursor of the scar. By controlling the inflammation, the body is prevented from over-reacting and producing “too much scar”. Finally, by optimizing the production of collagen, we promote the synthesis of a finer scar.

The aftermath of the treatment

There is no pain and the aftermath is very simple.

What are the treatment fees ?

From 350 € 

The cost of treatment by Urgo touch depends on the length of the scars and the complexity of your case.

The questions most often asked by patients

What is the healing time?

Depending on the area of the body, the healing process varies between 1 and 3 weeks. The scar will evolve for a year before stabilizing completely.

How can I heal faster?

  • Do not smoke
  • Do not engage in sports
  • Respect the instructions of your surgeon
  • Disinfection with soap and water once a day
  • Laser urgotouch if difficult case

Are there any scars after plastic surgery?

Scars and plastic surgery

Any scar will remain visible for life. The UrgoTouch laser treatment gives you every chance to have the most beautiful scar, without making it invisible. The scar will be red, hard and swollen between 3 and 6 months, then will begin to whiten and soften to reach its final appearance between 18 and 24 months.
